“Lovely food, great service!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

We went here for a 3course meal and the food was very nice, well cooked and served within reasonable time.
At first my pasta was on the cold side but after informing the staff they were more than happy to rectify this and the new pasta was delicious.
No complaints at all, given the price we were more than happy to pay!

“Average food, Horrendous service.”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

We wanted something to eat. We stood waiting for a table despite the restaurant not being overly busy. We were seen to and placed on a table. We were then left for about 10 minutes before somebody came to serve. We were offered drinks at the same time.

The food turned up after not too long a wait and was plonked on to the table as the waitress struggled to serve from across the table. A pizza in lap situation was narrowly avoided.

The food was average, we didn't expect great things, but the service really is poor and could do with being looked at.

“OK for a chain”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Typical franchise operation. Pizzas OK but other food not great. Like all P.Express' you need to be aware of Internet vouchers to get savings.

“Its OK...”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Never anything to write home about. I don't think there is enough pasta options (yes I know it is PIZZA express) - maybe just a couple more options?

Pizza - OK. I prefer Italian restaurant pizza, but it is better than Pizza Hut (anywhere is better than that!!)

Desserts v nice & I like the glass bottled soft drinks!!

I find the service rather slow but the staff seem friendly enough.

A bit pricey for what it is. A little overrated for me.

“Part of a chain, but one of the better Pizza Express venues”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Like many Pizza Express outlets, in a converted bank. They've as usual made good use of the existing features to make a pleasant place to have a standard PE meal.

It's a chain, so no need to reveiw the menu: sufficient to say that the food is well cooked and well presented and the staff are friendly and welcoming

If you want this kind of dining experience during your stay in Carlisle you could do a lot worse.
